CASE Study Challenge 55

Hiya! I was really on a roll yesterday, and have another card to share with you.

I made this for this week's CASE Study Challenge. The talented Julie Lacey is the muse for September and she created a beautiful sample.

I was inspired by the bird cage image as well as the music notes on the patterned paper. I also used generally the same sketch, swapping the circle for a Labels 18 die cut shape.

This card makes me happy! The bird cage images are from the Adore Stamp set from My Mind's Eye Market Street Lost and Found Collection. They are oriented on the index sheet this way, and I loved the way they looked together so I made sure to cluster them that way on my card. They are adhered to the die cut polka dot frame from Very Vintage Labels 18 with dimensionals.

The music notes (which are stamped upside down - oops!) are from the Musical Backgrounds set. I was so excited to add a bit of my new houndstooth patterned felt, too!

So happy to see you here today! Big hugs!
